The Crazy Road Around The World

The Crazy Road Around The World

The Decision

It was a VERY BIG DREAM for a very long time to see the northern lights. I always wanted to go to Norway, Finland or Sweden in order to experience this mind blowing scenario.  Driving around the world with my 21 years old car that I LOVE so much, was my dream as well, a little scary dream, but I was more curious and motivated than scared about it. The title "THE FIRST ISRAELI TO DRIVE AROUND THE WORLD WITH A CAR" sounds good to me, So I decided to accomplish it...People who know me well know how I love my car and won't change it for other one. It is my Citroen Xsara made in 1998, 1.8 liter engine with a manual gearbox, in one word: "BEAST".
I have driven many cars but this car has its own personality, the driving position, handling, the fast engine response, most comfortable seats and so much more words can't explain.
My big passion for adventure, extreme, nature, cars, and motorcycles is something I can't ignore. So one night a decision has been made... ! I will combine all the things I am passionate about in one crazy of a roadtrip.

The Plan

Part One: Shipping the car from Israel to Greece and then driving to the Northcape(Nordkapp) in Norway. Northest part of Europe over the Arctic Circle. Swimming in frozen cold ice water and so many more crazy things.

Part Two: Shipping the car from Europe to North America, Driving through most national parks of USA and west Canada. Crossing to ALASKA ! Driving all the way up to the most beautiful, dangerous, mesmerizing land in the WINTER! The goal is to get to Prudhoe Bay, northest part you can drive in Alaska. This will be the ultimate test of my driving skills, me as a strong man and my car as a tough machine.

Part Six: Australia! The Big Desert Country! The Kangaroo Country! Starting from the west coast in Sydney I will be driving to the east coast, Perth. Visiting National parks in the deadly desert. Darwin will be the last destination in Australia.

Part Seven: Vladivostok, Russia! The far east ! Russian is the biggest country in the world, the most adventurous road in Russia is the Trans Siberian Road. Total of 11,000 KM long!!! I will drive about 6000-7000 KM on this crazy road, till I reach Europe again. Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece is the final destination of this part. 

Part Eight: Shipping my car from Greece back to Israel. The final drive to the starting line in Jerusalem. Last kilometers of this enforgetable, amazing and  adventurous journey around the world.
